CLEVELAND Fire Brigade have issued an appeal for on-call firefighters to step forward and help their local communities.

The recruitment drive comes on the back of the coronavirus crisis when neighbourhoods came to together to support each other.

Steve Johnson, Senior Head, Engagement and Prevention, said: “During these unprecedented times we have seen many shining examples of everyone working together to keep people safe.

"We would like to harness this community spirit and ask people to seriously consider becoming on-call firefighters.

"It is a challenging, varied and highly rewarding role as you will be sharing your duties with highly motivated colleagues and putting the safety of your local area, friends, family and neighbours first."
